Husky Gargles 'Hello' at Passersby on Walk

A vocal husky made sure to greet passersby during a walk near Washington, DC.

This footage shows Chief, a seven-year-old Siberian husky, walking on a trail near Washington. As other hikers approach, the talkative pooch utters a goofy “huurrlo” while trotting along.

Chief’s owner, Lacey Watkins, told Storyful that Chief was being especially vocal that day. She said: “Most people respond happily to his voice, and he especially enjoys it when they pet him. The joy that he spreads is really special!”
